It isn't a proposal from what I have heard. They bought the land and have hinted at building up. Nothing has been "proposed." Fingers are crossed though. Uptown could use some new Class A.

Where are those lofts going to be built? Like along the Beltway Side... or what?

It's good to finally see some more concrete renderings of that hotel especially since the only version beforehand seemed to be from that one master overhead view.

As for the lofts, both have access from Queensbury Lane. The closest to the beltway is actually just behind the Lifetime Fitness trailer at the feeder. The other building is close to the center of the site at Town & Country Boulevard.

That would be awesome if they do eventually build something really tall there and of course the new Ritz-Carlton is being talked about over at BLVD place which alone would also make a huge impact on the uptown skyline. Hopefully they'll do both.

I love that a building is going in that location, and the idea of a restuarant by that lake is fanstastic, but my God, will someone break the mediocre design stronghold on the city of Houston? This building design could have been so much better. I think a building similar to Terminus 100 in Buckhead would have suited my taste for that location.

I tell ya' , for every 2727 Kirby, and Mainplace in Houston, there are 10 mediocre siblings.

I was thinking about the same thing. Great rendering thourgh.

On another note i went to Discovery Green tonite, i wanted to see the park at night. It was so nice. They have some blue lights that outline the lake. They looks so awesome. It really is a great place...
